Dear Steve and family: My condolences on Cheryls passing. Although I didnt know Cheryl very well, I do remember coming over a few times to talk with Steve and Cheryl, and to help on occasion with trimming those huge vines that grew on the fence between our houses. (I was your neighbor next door on Appennini Way between 2012-2017). I will always remember Cherls wonderful smile, charming personality and laugh, as well as her incredible devotion to charity work.

My condolences to the Kuharski Family. Cheryl was a wonderful, kind, and loving person. Cheryl and I worked together at Albertsons in Boise and went to college together there. Cheryl's family lived near the Albertson ice cream plant and the family shopped at Albertsons. Cheryl and I were working on her history/photos the day before she passed. Cheryl had written,

"I will look for a picture that I think I have in old picture with my mother posing with a grocery cart, I think, in front of a meat counter. It was used in an ad in the newspaper. My project this winter was to go through old photos, that my parents had, scan them or throw them out. My kids won't have a clue who some of them are. Well, that project has not even started yet. Now there are other things to take up my time.

Good luck with your project.


My love and support to the family,

I am so sorry to hear of Cheryl's passing. Cheryl and I laughed, cried, and struggled together during the early days of CEDRA - and we shared a few glasses of wine too. She loved her family very much and will be missed by all.
